Tiffany over at A Moment Cherished is now hosting Momentous Monday, a chance for all of us to cherish everyday moments. Please check out her beautiful blog for more precious moments.
The past two weeks have been really hard. We have had a very difficult time with the Teen and some big decisions are being made. Part of the upcoming changes may include me needing to let him go, and it breaks my heart (more on this here). It's been two weeks of worry, stress, and heartbreak.
The other night I was doing one of my most favorite things - sitting in our home library reading a great book. It was The Sacrifice by Beverly Lewis. I was listening to my son laughing down in his room, trying so hard to cherish the sound when I came to this line in the book (the one in italics):
"Things happen for a reason...therefore the sovereignty of God can be wholly trusted. You can throw your life on His mercy."
Peace filled my heart. While I knew this truth, I needed to hear it again - right then. I may not understand what's going on right now, but God does. I don't know what's best for the Teen, but God does.
While the situation is still sad, I feel so much better about it. God is in control. My job is to pray and to trust and obey.
